CALENDAR GIRLS

IT’S another outing for the popular and witty play based on the true story of a group of WI members who hit the headlines with their rather unusual calendar.When Annie’s husband John dies of leukaemia, she and best friend Chris decide to attempt to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news spreads, and the paparazzi descend on their small, rural village. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame. Presented by Portchester Players at Ashcroft Arts Centre in Fareham from Wednesday to Saturday.
